Religious Liberty and Institutionalized Disabled People

I was just awarded a research grant to study and write on the issue of religious liberty of institutionalized disabled people. Anybody who strolls through this little blog and has some anecdotes on this issue please comment. I'll mostly focus on the state of the law and the rights and liabilities of both the disabled people living in institutions and also the managers and staff at these facilities. I intuit that often these folks do not get their needs met -- either through visiting the churches they wish to or having access to ministers, friends, etc. from church. Anway, I'm excited and hope to be posting some preliinary results here in any case.

Again, if anyone out there comes across something pertinent and comes here please leave a comment.
